Rachel Dolezal, president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP, talks to KXLY4’s Jeff Humphrey about several hate crimes she’s reported over the years, but walks away from the interview when asked questions about her ethnicity. Democrats can’t blame this on Republicans LOL.

Dolezal’s mother, Ruthanne, says the family’s ancestry is Czech, Swedish and German, with a touch of Native American heritage. Dolezal has identified herself in application materials as white, black and Native American. Police say they have found little evidence of racial harassment.
There are questions about Spokane’s NAACP Chapter President, Rachel Dolezal. The city confirmed with KHQ she claimed to be of African-American descent on a city application to be on the Ombudsman commission. But we spoke with her parents today who say Rachel is white and has been misrepresenting her ethnicity for years.
Dolezal teaches African American Culture at Eastern Washington University as an adjunct instructor. Her blog also says she is an art instructor at North Idaho College, is an advisor for the NIC Black Student Association.
Dolezal made headlines back in February when she claimed someone had mailed racist and threatening letters to the NAACP post office box. KHQ managed to obtain a 38-page Spokane Police report about the investigation into that mail. Officers concluded that the mail had not been properly processed through the post office, and was likely put directly into the post office box, without being mailed at all. They said only a few people have access to the box: the USPS employees who work there, and the boxholder. Police said they do not believe the USPS employees put the mail there. The investigation continues.
Here is a rare interview with Rachel and I am not sure how people didn’t see she wasn’t white. Wait until you get to the 8:18 portion of the video.
Here are a few pictures of Dolezal and people it’s plain to see she isn’t a black woman.
